Types of Abuse 



There are many different types of abuse, and within each type, there are many different abusive behaviours the victim is subjected to.


Some types of abuse are obvious and overt, some of non obvious, covert, and often victims won't even know they are being subjected to it.


There are different factors that affect how the abuse affects each individual, and obviously if the abuse is over prolonged periods of time, and if perpetrated to a child in particular - the affects can be far greater, and more life impacting.


Here is a list of recources I have collated, that examine and explain the different types of abuse.
